Toms River Nursery School and Kindergarten, established in 1945, has been serving the families in the Toms River area for 65 years.
Our school is a non-profit parent cooperative school, owned by the parents and students currently enrolled.
We respect the personality of each child and strive to invite a child's curiosity, encourage creativity and inspire ideas.
All classrooms create an environment that stimulates the need to ask questions and seek solutions while allowing the child the freedom to develop his or her own style of work and play.
Independence is encouraged with the clear understanding that it carries with it social responsibility.
We strive to stimulate and inculcate in a child a feeling for aesthetic and moral values through his or her enthusiasm and attitudes.
